Sounds like everything is going great! What foods are you feeding them?

I'd love to see pics as soon as their big enough, believe me, I know the frustration of trying to take pics when they are too small.

I tried the keeping the male in with the fry method, and it didn't work too well for me. Before I removed him, he had eaten all but eight of them.

The key to hatching BBS is to have a heat source. Use a heater (If using a huge amount or if it will be over night).Or get a heating bulb, or even a lamp that just sits above the container with the BBS. Also make sure that you keep aeration throughout the tank by having an air stone in the container.

In a day and some hours, you should definitely have some BBS!

This is a nice and easy way to SEE how to hatch BBS, if you're a more visual person:

Good Luck and Let us know how everything goes!

There are alot of instruction videos out there to hatch BBS ^^

I use non-hatching decap bse so i don't have to bother with a set up. I can send you some if you're in the US(I made a post in the classifieds about it).

@bambi: Would you tell us how the decaps work? I have never used them before and am a bit interested. I'm sure it will be helpful to the OP and myself!
